Girls ‘targeted’ by gangs NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
cean View parents have been warned to be extra cautious following reports that girls were being followed home after evening youth activities. Some girls have also reportedly been approached for their contact details by alleged gang members, which has sparked fears of human trafficking in the community. Community policing forum chairperson Kathy Cronje says: “It
has been brought to our attention that many girls in Ocean View feel that they are being followed. We would like to encourage all parents to escort their children everywhere, and to know where their children are at all times. “We would like to warn parents that not only are the human trafficking figures rising daily, but the increase in child rapes and murders in Cape Town is of great concern. Please look after your children,” she says. However, Ocean View police
spokesperson Sergeant Leon Fortuin says there is no link between local gang activity and human trafficking. “Ocean View police have not received any complaints about human trafficking in the past year. We currently only have one missing person on record, but it is an elderly person who regularly goes missing. “There is no link whatsoever between the gangs in Ocean View and human trafficking. Ocean View gangs concentrate on drugs and
turf,” he explains. Ocean View Care Centre cofounder Johann Kikilus says he is aware of girls being approached at a dance class in Ocean View. Although he does not believe that incident is linked to human trafficking, he has cautioned parents that gang members often try to recruit young girls. “It is the first time that such an incident has been brought to my attention where gangsters allegedly tried to recruit young women. “We face a different kind of hu-
man trafficking. Young girls or women are sucked into a gang; usually raped or threatened. They are often high-risk cases to begin with – drug addicts or ‘girlfriends’ of gangsters or dealers. They usually are indebted to the gang, often due to free use of drugs or other material things.” In cases of gang recruitment, prevention is far easier than cure, Kikilus says, and high-risk behaviour can often be spotted in girls as young as 10.

FROM PAGE 1 Young girls are often groomed to join gangs, he cautions, and in many cases they face problems or abuse at home. “The young women who are targeted usually have very low self-esteem and are desperate for some type of attention in order to feel loved and accepted,” he says. “I would say that our youth are at high risk at the moment. On any given day when I drive around communities in the Far South, I will find dozens of young girls and boys sitting on the pavements. We have an extremely high dropout rate and many of these teenagers walk straight into the arms of the drug dealers and gangs. This is a problem across Cape Town and the Cape Flats.” The best way to avoid gang recruitment is to ensure children
attend school until Grade 12, Kikillus believes. “At the very least, they will be safe and looked after,” he says. “Parents need to play a more active role and not expect everybody else to look after their kids. “Lastly, I am always calling on religious bodies to lead the way. We have over ten thousand minors in the Far South. A very small fraction of these minors are part of a youth group. Young people need safe places where they talk about their problems at home or school or the struggles that they are facing.” Fortuin adds that young girls are also the most at risk in being targeted for human trafficking, and parents should be aware of where their children are at all times.

R15m to help homeless
NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
round R15m has been set out to provide social services to street people. The funds will be used by the City of Cape Town’s reintegration unit to increase the team’s ability to provide support to street people in Cape Town. The reintegration unit offers social services to street people, including referral to shelters and access to expanded public works programmes and help with getting IDs and social grants, explains JP Smith, Mayco member for safety, security, and social services. “The unit also assists those who want to be reunified with their families or return to their places of
Going small the next step in tourism NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain Small businesses may soon rule the tourism industry. This trend shaping the sector was discussed by Cape Town Tourism representatives at the recent tourism indaba in Durban. It is estimated that within 20 years, 90% of all companies in South Africa will be SMMEs, explains Cape Town Tourism CEO Enver Duminy. “The tourism land-
scape is changing; new interests are emerging and we’re coming of age into an exciting world where visions are becoming reality. As destinations reinvent themselves to stay relevant, we’re providing value upon added value for visitors, ensuring that growth in the sector continues.” Small and medium businesses currently represent 40% of all businesses in South Africa. The Western Cape is the fastest-growing province in the country for
SMMEs, he adds. The tourism industry is well suited to smaller businesses because it’s possible to develop a small operation that fills a gap in the industry, Duminy explains. “There are many tourism industry bodies and organisations, as well as other tourism businesses, which provide support to SMMEs in terms of skills development and mentorship. We see small tourism businesses collaborating to provide more for visitors.”
origin. The unit works closely with Law Enforcement on operations focusing on street people in order to ensure that social services are offered to those in need,” he says. The unit also conducts campaigns to raise public awareness on the importance of giving to shelters and NGOs working with street people instead of giving to street people directly, he says. The reintegration unit has four teams. Each team consists of a supervisor, three reintegration officers and six field workers supported by two social work interns, explains Smith. “For the current financial year (July 2016 to date), the unit has engaged with 2400 street people throughout the city,” he says. The funds now allocated will be
used for social services to street people, early intervention programmes, the public awareness campaign, street people operations with Law Enforcement, afterhours operations, temporary work opportunities for street people through the expanded public works programme, development of a safe space for street people, and the winter readiness programme for street people, Smith says. “The key aim is to reduce the number of people living on the streets by upskilling street people, providing access to work opportunities for street people in shelters or those reunited with their families and increasing the reach of the ‘Give responsibly’ campaign.” V For more information call the City’s tollfree number on 0800 872 201.
Extra cops to stop shootings Over the past week, Ocean View police arrested 32 people for common assault, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, domestic violence, possession of drugs, malicious damage to property and theft and on warrant of arrests. “The station also deployed extra manpower over the weekend, with the station commander Lieutenant-Colonel Errol Mekeur himself working extra
hours over the weekend to curb the number of shootings taking place,” says police spokesperson Sergeant Leon Fortuin. “This led to successful drug operations on Friday and Saturday in which people were caught in possession of various drugs, including dagga, mandrax and tik. “Slowly but surely we are going to win the fight against gangsterism and drugs.”

Safety sits on motorists’ shoulders
NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
n accident at the Uxbridge Road level crossing last week left two injured and raised more concerns about safety at the crossing. The accident happened on the same day a letter appeared in People’s Post in which a Lakeside resident explained how a crossing attendant, hired to wave a flag and warn motorists of approaching trains, had been asleep on the job (“Asleep at the track”, 23 May). Crossing attendants were appointed at level crossings along the train line following an accident in January, when a truck struck the level-crossing boom at the Albertyn Road intersection, creating “major damage”
to overhead wires and “decimating” signalling equipment (“Crossing opened”, People’s Post, 21 February). In the Uxbridge Road accident on Tuesday, a train crashed into a car, leaving the two occupants in a serious medical condition. Both had to be cut free of the car, says ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring (“Accident injures two in Lakeside”, www.peoplespost.co.za, 23 May). The cause of the accident is still under investigation, says Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott. She adds that the allegations made against the crossing attendant are “serious” and “contrary to train operating rules”. She says Metrorail’s business risk department will investigate the allegations. “We do our utmost to provide crossing at-
tendants at the level crossings currently impacted by the reconstruction and repairs after a heavy delivery truck decimated our signalling infrastructure. Most level crossings do not have suitable facilities for attendants (ablutions, shelter, etc). Trains have right of way at road/rail level crossing intersections as they operate on fixed infrastructure and cannot take evasive action during emergencies,” she says. “Similar to traffic signals being out of order, the onus remains on pedestrians and motorists to comply with road signage.”
As further safety measures, Scott adds, train drivers are obligated to sound sirens when approaching level crossings and put their headlights on bright. Trains are currently running on a reduced speed. If any corrective or preventive recommendations flow from the investigation into Tuesday’s accident, these will be considered, Scott says. Metrorail is in the process of buying the new equipment needed to fix the damaged signalling infrastructure. The service is expected to be restored by September.

KITCHEN ‘THIEF’: A resident of
No to mediator chosen ‘without consultation’ NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
asiphumelele community leaders have rejected the mediator appointed by the City of Cape Town. The mediator was to work to resolve ongoing conflict between Masiphumelele residents and City officials and “a consultative process with all Masiphumelele stakeholders to improve communication” was set to take place in upcoming weeks (“Mediator to invite talks”, People’s Post, 23 May). Relations deteriorated earlier this year following a government report that the City had not been providing adequate service delivery to the area. The report was subsequently withdrawn after it was found the issues were part of a more complicated government process. In March, City officials’ attempt to discuss service delivery in Masiphumelele were met with anger during a community meeting (“Residents have no time for delay”, People’s Post, 21 March). After the initial announcement of plans to appoint a mediator, community leaders in Masiphumelele responded in a statement: “We feel our efforts have finally resulted in this appointment of an independent mediator and discussions can now resume.” However, after a meeting with City officials, the conflict resolution specialist appointed by the City “was rejected by the Masiphumelele Leadership Structure”, says chairperson Tshepo Moletsane in a second statement. “This was because, while we appreciate the gesture of independent mediators being financed by the City, the mediators themselves were appointed without the consultation of our leadership team. This goes against the entire principle of mediation where both conflicting sides must agree to the neutral body.” The leaders have put forward two candi-
dates to act as mediators. “We will wait to hear whether the City officials are amenable to our suggestion of the two mediators and then will issue a further statement about what has actually been agreed by the leadership, not what others claim has been agreed,” the second statement says. The community leaders rejected the mediator as the appointment “was not transparent with no clear qualifications”, Moletsane told People’s Post. He adds there is a need for mediation “only when there is a conflict and deadlock”.
Going forward Moletsane says the leaders have specific requirements for the mediation process, including for the process to be fair and the electrification of all outstanding sections of Masiphumelele. Despite several assurances that Moletsane would provide further comment, he had not responded by the time of going to print. Eddie Andrews, Mayco member (South), says the appointed mediator, IR Change, has begun to independently engage with all the stakeholders to determine if there is a need for mediation. “Only once this process has run its course, will there be clarity on whether mediation has indeed been refused. The consultative process is ongoing. In the interim, the City will continue to deliver services to Masiphumelele,” he says. “The process is at the pre-mediation stage which is to determine the views of all of the stakeholder groups with regard to mapping and planning a way forward. There will be clarity on the form and course that the facilitated discussions should take only once this process has run its course. “In the interim, we will continue to work with all of the Masiphumele stakeholders to facilitate improved working relationships and expanded service delivery in Masiphumelele,” he says.

Photos show ‘skollies can change’ TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji
t is said that experience is the best teacher, and as clichéd as it might sound, former gangsters are using their experiences to change their communities. These reformed gangsters are helping their gang-ridden communities and showing people – even beyond their own suburbs – that change is possible. “One of the most difficult things about changing your life is that you will always get those people who will hold the past against you.
One of the photos in the exhibition.
People judge you on your tattoos. They call you a skollie. But even skollies can change,” says Khiyaam Frey, a CeaseFire participant. The men are using their background and street cred to work as “professional violence interrupters” as part of the CeaseFire initiative to reduce gang violence. Their lives, what they are trying to do and where they are going are being showcased in an exhibition by social change photographer Lee-Ann Olwage at Amplify Studio, 153 Loop Street in the city centre. The exhibition, called The Interrupters, will officially open to-

morrow and run until Thursday 8 June. Born in Durban in 1986, Olwage is a False Bay-based photographer who believes in using the power of photography for social change. She tackles hard-hitting social issues through her work but also aims to show positive solutions to these problems. The photographic exhibition, in collaboration with CeaseFire in Hanover Park and the City of Cape Town, includes portraits of reformed gangsters and tells the stories of those who have changed their lives. The aim of the exhibition is to tell their inspirational stories of change through the portraits and to have people look at the social issues that contribute towards young men joining gangs. The exhibition will act as a social campaign that looks at difficult social issues faced by Cape Flats communities as well as provide positive solutions to these problems. “CeaseFire has reduced gang violence by 43% in Hanover Park, one of the most violent areas. Perhaps it is time for a new approach in dealing with gangsterism and we should rather look at treating the cause instead of the symptoms,” says Olwage. “In trying to understand gangs, we need to move past the sensational newspaper headlines and ask what can be done to help young people live meaningful, resilient lives in environments that charac-

The subject of the work, the artwork and the viewer are often separated from each other. Olwage wants to challenge this sense of separation by having the subjects of the photographs as guests at the exhibition to blur these lines and give the visitors the chance to interact with them to break down social boundaries as well as blur the
lines between art, subject and viewer. “The evening will be used to talk about the hard-hitting social issues that contribute towards gang violence and to take an honest look at what the society can do to help these men who want to change their lives and the youth at risk,” says Olwage. Olwage’s previous work includes a project on the Black Mambas, an all-women anti-poaching unit who are shaking things up in the conservation world.

Friday events to ward off criminals NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
ish Hoek residents took to the streets for the third Take Back the Town Friday event recently. Police, Law Enforcement officers and neighbourhood watch members, as well as ward councillors, carried out a safety patrol through the suburb. In addition to this the Ocean View-based band Oceans Riff entertained the crowd who visited the local crafters in the
Friday event. The initiative is part of ward councillor Aimee Kuhl’s goal to support communities in becoming “resilient”. “By showing a visible presence via a community event and safety walkabout it serves as a deterrent to crimes while simultaneously encouraging local entrepreneurs and Fish Hoek residents to take back their town after hours,” she says. “The importance of community events like Take Back the Town is
to build community resilience and for the community to take ownership of their town, the problems and the possibilities. The event shows the criminal element that there is resistance and increased awareness and therefore the town becomes a less desirable place to conduct criminal activities,” she adds. V The next Take Back the Town Friday event will take place on Lower Recreation Road, Fish Hoek on Friday 30 June from 17:30 to 20:00.

Family fun at Goudini Spa The idea of three long weeks of school holidays can scare any parent. “What are we going to do with the children during all this time?” ATKV Goudini Spa has the solution and will guarantee a family breakaway with fun-filled entertainment programmes during school holidays and long weekends. Goudini Spa hosts a wide variety of activities for all ages, ranging from fun exercises in the early hours of the day, including zumba, yoga, hiking and water aerobics, to activities for children like puppet shows and treasure hunts. After the morning warm-up you can move on to water sports in and around the pools that will have your family members crying with laughter and cheering each other on to take the games to the next level. There are also popular games with a twist, like “Minute to win it”, “Don’t forget the lyrics”, “Power couple”, “Fear factor”, “Amazing race” and “Escape the room” which have taken the resort by storm, as well as popular sports such as soccer, rugby, cricket, volleyball and
basketball. End the evening with a relaxing movie night under the stars, variety acts, South Africa’s top artists or the very popular karaoke evenings next to the natural hot pools. These are just a few of the activities and attractions hosted by Goudini Spa during holiday times. Why go anywhere else?

here is a little more than R18 000 up for grabs in a local soccer tournament heading to Strandfontein next month. Three days of action-packed soccer, will see 32 teams vie for four trophies in the u.16 Youth Cup hosted by Bayview FC. People’s Post is the official media sponsor of the competition. Residents are urged to attend the tournament to witness the up-and-coming soccer players in action. With teams coming from far and wide, residents are in for a treat when teams take to the Strandfontein sports field on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June. Kick-off for the matches is on Saturday at 09:00 and on Sunday at 10:00. The finals will be played on Friday 16 June. “On Youth Day we are setting aside a few hours for a programme and we want everyone to join in,” says Mark Rodrigues, tournament director. The aim of the competition is to promote health and wellness and claim back youth at risk from gangsterism and a life of crime.
Participating teams must pay a minimal entry fee. The teams in groups 1 and 2 will play in the champion section, with group 3 playing in the plate section and group 4 playing in the shield section. Something different at this competition is that all 32 teams will return to play on the last day of competition. “This year we have the Cassiem Davids trophy. He recently died and did a lot for the sport so we are doing it in memory of him,” says Rodrigues. In the champion section both teams will win soccer gear, a trophy and medals. The winner will walk away with R6500 while the runner-up will win R3500. In the plate section, the first and second teams will receive medals and a trophy. The winner will receive R2500 and the runner-up R2000. In the shield section first and second place will receive medals and a trophy with R1500 for the winners and R1000 for second place. For the Cassiem Davids trophy the winner will receive medals, a shield and R750 and the runner-up will receive medals and R450. Additional awards will go to the top goal scorer, top goalkeeper and team, player, coach and junior and senior referee of the tournament.

Taking the plunge Ready for the new challenge? “Oh, yes!” I quickly said. At the time I was driving through the dusty streets of Mount Frere and saw my future shining bright. I was saying yes to a transition and new beginning far away from my comfort zone. Anxiously looking forward to the beauty of Cape Town and its opportunities, the people and all that the move was going to expose me to. I said to myself: “Transition, take your course. I will deliver what is expected of me and you and your challenges, let’s meet halfway. By then I will already be one step ahead of you.” I had that thought because I knew there was a professional level to maintain and the social life to adapt to. Now prioritising had to take place. I was not shaken as many would have expected but was anxious to not disappoint or be lost in the excitement before conquering my biggest challenge. What was that, you wonder. As mentioned, the transition from dusty streets to the glamorous streets of Cape Town where everything seemed to happen in the blink of an eye. I was comfortable knowing I would be continuing to do what I loved – reporting – but at a better level. In Cape Town, I started walking on the rather glamorous streets with the dazzling lights and speeding cars. Not that I had never been in big cities before, but now the thought of actually driving on these busy roads, with the other cars seeming to speed around me, gave me goosebumps. I was scared for my life and called my brother to say: “Hey, look, I know I have been driving for the past two years but I am going to need maths or some scientific knowledge to master this here.” He laughed and said: “Didn’t you say that when you drove your car the first time?” I was like, oh well, if I survived that day, then Cape Town was not a problem. I squared my shoulders and quickly stole some skills from my new colleagues as they took turns to show me around. A few days later I conquered my fear and now feel more at home on the roads around town. Almost three months have flown by and I’m glad to admit: Transition successful! – Nomzamo Yuku

Skaters are ‘oblivious’ It is with great concern that I have been watching the increasingly popular activity our teenagers are engaging in, and that is skateboarding on suburban and main roads in Fish Hoek. I have decided to write this as a result of witnessing an extreme near miss on a Saturday morning when a teenager was lucky to escape injury in Lower Recreation Road. The traffic was busy and the young man was skating on the gutter side of the road when he tripped and fell right in front of a car, which was moving slowly towards the robot. The driver braked immediately, and the boy was unharmed, as he had fallen a few feet in front of the car. These young people are becoming more and more reckless and seem oblivious of the dangers and of causing an innocent driver to be involved in a possible tragedy which they would have to live with for the rest of their lives. There must be some way of outlawing this dangerous practice, because sooner rather than later there is going to be a serious, if not fatal, accident. KATHLEEN JOAN NORRIS Fish Hoek
Skate with death On Monday 22 May just before 20:00, I was travelling to Fish Hoek via Sun Valley. On Corsair Way there was a car travelling in the opposite direction. A skateboarder was sitting on his skateboard in the middle of the road. Suddenly I saw his vague silhouette. Fortunately he was about 20m in front of me and I was travelling about 40 km/H, otherwise I would have collided with him. Surely there are facilities for skating and if you use a skateboard as transport, [you should] skate on the side of the road or on the pavement and wear reflective clothing. He can count himself lucky to be able to skate for his enjoyment. JAAP DE LANGE Stellenbosch

No excuse to not help Behind the seemingly quiet façade of our valley, in houses dotted far and wide, there are those who aren’t preparing to settle in front of the telly nor have a good eight hours’ sleep. These people are collecting their neighbourhood watch kits and are hitting the streets to be a first line of defence against crime. Day and night these volunteers, with the backup of various camera systems and communication links to security providers and law enforcement departments keep a vigilant eye on suspicious activities, vehicles, fires, missing persons and the occasional hunt for the lost dog. In their capacity to do good they’ve even changed tyres, given lifts and popped in to reassure the elderly neighbour down the street. Now I know your next thought is going to be: “I haven’t the time, fitness level or desire to be out there. Let someone else do the job who enjoys that sort of thing.” Let me tell you, you are missing out. Whilst some of us are not patrollers there are many ways to be part of the neighbourhood watch. Some of the behind-the-scenes activities include watching and checking cameras, keeping an eye out at local school functions, admin, being a safe house, monitoring the various social media groups, right down to just being eyes from your window or recharging torch batteries.
Apart from the above methods of helping, there is always the much-needed and appreciated monetary donations that can assist with replenishments of communal items such as decals, torches, vests, radios or the items themselves. The body that oversees the neighbourhood watches is called the community policing forum (CPF). They liaise and work closely with a range of departments. The CPF is also constantly busy with community projects that include trauma rooms, street dwellers and parking guard attendants and are always grateful for extra hands and talents. They also would welcome donations to carry on with the projects running presently and to implement new ones. There is ample data proving that where a strong neighbourhood watch exists, the amount of crime decreases drastically. There is opportunity to do training through various government departments. There is really no excuse not to get involved in whatever capacity suits you, whether you can offer one hour a month or 12 hours a day, you are needed and wanted. Feel free to contact me on 021 786 1146 or 079 951 9786 so I can pass you to the correct CPF contact or neighbourhood watch coordinator. KAREN KERCHHOFF Simon’s Town CPF
Thanks for caring for aunt To all the wonderful people in Cape Town who assisted us with my aunt Sylvia Allen in the times she spent in your hospitals, False Bay Hospital in Fish Hoek, Living Hope in Sunnydale and Ocean View Day Hospital.

well as the ambulance services. She passed away peacefully on Wednesday 26 April. This is just a short note of appreciation to all of you, including the ministers and members of the New Apostolic Church and, last but not least, our wonderful family. BASIL AND EUGENE Email
RED CROSS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
Kids rock hospital waves NOMZAMO YUKU @NomzamoYuku
The team of producers and presenters on newly launched RX radio at Red Cross War Memorial Hospital.
he first radio station in South Africa to involve patients has been launched at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. The RX radio station was launched last Saturday with the aim to empower and encourage sick children to dream big and share their experiences. The station has children as producers, presenters and reporters. According to Noluyolo Ngomani, senior producer of RX radio, the station was established under the auspices of the hospital’s facility board. “The initiative aims to create a platform for communication between hospitalised children, their families and the health services by providing patients with the skills and support to produce and broadcast radio programmes across the hospital.” Shows anchored by children are meant to entertain and engage other patients. They include programmes pre-recorded and produced by patients about their experiences and interests, programmes for children, music, interactive games, competitions, dedications and discussions in which children can participate on air from their hospital beds. “In the next two years, we will provide
about 80 chronically ill children with the skills to produce and broadcast programmes about their experiences to the broader hospital community, give health workers and family members important new insights into a hospitalised child’s unique perspective and provide vital emotional support and mental stimulation to thousands of ill children during their stay at the hospital.” One of the young presenters, Kauthar (16), a kidney transplant patients, says she joined the radio station, because she
wanted to make a difference in the lives of other patients and be a helping hand to other patients. She says she was on dialysis for eight years before she got a kidney. Another presenter, Rheed (14), says: “I had an osteosarcoma in my hip. For those who do not know, it is bone cancer. I am five months in remission and a survivor. I focus on my future and won’t let cancer take anything more than it has already. “I look at how I can turn my situation into a positive and love the fact I can give back and shine a light for others.”

Manenberg women win tight derby ANDRÉ CRUYWAGEN
anenberg women narrowly defeated RV United 3-2 in a nailbiting Safa Sasol Cape Town regional women’s league derby played in Manenberg on Saturday. The hosts were on the attack from the onset, with Raymondo Bergman giving Manenberg women the lead from a long square cross early to kickstart the match. Manenberg continued with their momentum and Bergman was at it again in the 24th minute. RV, with a second-half deficit, crawled back after Lihle Qokela revived their hopes with a goal. The hosts hit back once again as Chante-Lee Carelse secured the victory for them with a goal to stop the visitors from snatching all three points, instead settling for a consolation goal minutes before the final whistle by Zimasa Khana. UWC easily beat Vasco da Gama 5-2 at Parow Park on Saturday. The visitors took control of the game after the hosts fail to take advantage of their home turf. Leandra Smeda netted for the students in the 15th minute after she scored from a classic through pass by Amogeleng Motau. The students dominated ball possession, while Vasco lacked ruth-
lessness in attack. Motau scored again for the visitors in the 22th minute, while Thembi Kgatana netted twice for her team before the break. Vasco struggled to regain their shape for most of the match and the students latched onto it. Abongile Dlani scored for the winners while Kim Nicholson and Danielle Clayford scored for the hosts. In an exhilarating league derby played at Mandela Park on Saturday, Cape Town Roses defeated Portia United 4-2. The Roses blossomed with their ball skills while the hosts were licking their wounds on home soil. Roses’ right winger Daweti Lelona, who struck with two quick goals, was the kingpin for her team, spurring them on in the process. Roses, with a 2-0 advantage in the first half, were alert and caused the host to tremble. Vukapi Sisanda strengthened her team’s position with a superb goal. Nomthandazo Kubheka’s goalscoring double effort was too late as agile striker Fulutidulu Ode netted for the visitors after she dribbled her way past a sloppy defence. Ikamva FC women won Milano United women 2-0 at Nyanga Stadi-
um. The hosts took the upper hand after the visitors could not produce a steady counter attack. Anelisa Makeleni gave them an early first half lead and secured the win for her team in the 82th minute with her second strike. Spurs women hammered Dangerous Heroes 2-0 at William Herbert sports ground. Spurs were quick on the attack and the danger subsided as they displayed their home dominance. Spurs striker Jennifer Martin scored for them after the visitors’ performance fell into disarray. Antonia Carelse secured a victory for her team with a hard-won goal. Santos women crushed Maties FC 3-1 in Crawford. Santos players gelled superbly, allowing Lucinda Croy to score for them midway through the first half. A brace of goals by Megan Gaine sealed the victory for her team, while Jessica Theron scored the consolation goal for the students. Croy, the backbone of the Santos attack, has been called up to attend the Banyana Banyana training camp.

Central hockey club dominates WPCC RASHIED ISAACS
entral hockey club produced one of its better performances this season by beating the defending grand challenge champion, Western Province Cricket Club, 6-3 at Vygieskraal on Saturday. The Athlone team was faster out of the starting blocks with goals by Thulani Mnani and Ryan Julies in the first 8 minutes of the game. WPCC was caught sleeping on their sticks as a further goal by Jordan Groenewald put them on the back foot. The Vygieskraal surface suited the home team better with Zubair Hamza’s intelligent play to link with his strikers a constant threat for the WPCC defence. There was a glimmer of hope for the visitors when Lloyd Norris Jones and Nicholas Giger combined brilliantly in attack, only for Bernard Greybe, Central’s shot stopper, to keep their goal attempts at bay. WPCC would eventually score through Robin Blamepied from a well-worked short corner with Giger and Nathan Loff both tapped in from goal mouth scrambles. Central dominated the second half and added three more goals through a brace by Max Bissolati and Jason Mulder to put the result beyond doubt.
Not quitting WPCC never threw in the towel and tried to make the best of three goal deficits with Rondebosh Boys matriculant Ryan Crowie prominent in defence and attack. Central took its foot of the peddle and chose to defend its lead by crowding the goal area with defenders, making it difficult for the opposition to score. “The first chukka of the game was good and very intense and scoring the first two goals really knocked the wind out of their sails. “However, I was not happy with the second and third quarters, but we brought back in the last, so I am pleased with the performance as the result was never in doubt,” says Central coach Bruce Jacobs. The result of 6-3 capped off a good weekend for Central hockey club with its women’s team beating Constantia 7-1 to advance its standing in the grand challenge reserve league.

UCT women win big ANDRÉ CRUYWAGEN Top-of-the-log UCT regained its magic against RV United at UCT on Saturday after winning 6-0 in a Safa Cape Town regional women’s league match. UCT is the firm favourite to win this league and is not disappointing by marching on as opposition players are sent tumbling before them. Nemo Mguqulua (2), Camryn Hicks (2), Ella Woerman and Wendy Mbeje scored for the students. FC Tafelzicht women secured a valuable point against Heideveld women’s football academy after they were held to a 3-3 draw at the Westridge oval. Tafelzicht was aware of the visitor’s second-placed position on the log and rallied its players to withstand the Heideveld onslaught. Fazlin Adams, with two goals for Heideveld, was again the thorn in the flesh of Tafelzicht, along with Kim Mentoor, who netted from a Heideveld attack. Despite the visitor’s lead, Tafelzicht recovered. Nabeelah Galant, Nolungisa Nkwali and Roland Emery scored the goals to salvage the game. Phoenix Spurs women humiliated underperforming Ambassadors women 7-0 at the Kromboom sports grounds. The Spurs were too good, with the team displaying composure to win the crucial encounter. Jamie-Lee Motlatsis stood out with her five goals, while Lina Chipili and Bridgette van Rooyen steered the Spurs to a well-deserved victory.
